A Study of Contexts and Practices

How to Comment

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 This site is powered by CommentPress, which allows comments to be attached to individual paragraphs, to whole pages, or to an entire document. To leave a comment on a paragraph, click the speech bubble to its right; to leave a comment on an entire page, click the link to “comments on the whole page” in the right-hand column. To leave general comments on the entire text, click the single comment bubble icon in the navigation bar.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 1 Comments are moderated for first-time unregistered commenters, but only as a means of spam-prevention; comments will not be filtered for content.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 You can navigate the text using the bar across the top of the page; arrow buttons will take you forward and backward section by section, the closed book button will return you to the title page, and the home icon will take you to the MediaCommons Press top page. The arrows at far right will collapse or expand the text’s header.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 The relative widths of the main text column and the comments column can be changed by dragging the right edge of the main column. Footnotes are readable by rolling over a footnote marker like this one [1]; they’re also included as clickable, commentable text on the Notes page at the text’s end.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 CommentPress also presents three innovative ways of reading comments on the text. By clicking on the double comment bubble icon in the navigation bar, you can access all comments by page; in the list of pages, ordered by number of contents, clicking on the page title will cause the comments to expand, and clicking on “Comment” in each comment’s header will allow you to see that comment in its context. By clicking on the person icon in the navigation bar, you can read comments-by-author, with the same functionality as for comments-by-page. Finally, the “Activity” tag above the right-hand column will show you the most recent comments left in the document.

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 If you have questions about the text’s format, please feel free to leave them here.

  • This is what the pop-up footnotes look like. If you find a note that runs off the top or the bottom of the page, scroll the main window a bit and you should be able to make the entire thing appear.
